We spotted the "Official Vehicle of Timberline Lodge" on the Dec 22 run up Mount Hood. (Photos to be posted as soon as I can upload them).

At first we couldn't tell if it was a white AV or a black one. There was a huge sticker that coveres the rear 2/3s of the AV! Avalanche and NF-girl decyphered that it was indeed a black Z-71.


Check out the link they had plastered on 1/2 of the tailgate: SkiChevy.com

It is commonly known in the automotive paint industry that certain colours are more areodynamic than others and that this closley follows the light spectre. Lack of colour = high resistance and deep colour = low resistance. ?So a white car has more wind resistance on the surface paint than darker colours such as red and black.

But it is a scientific fact that black cars go the fastest out of all the colours.... followed closely by red. ?;)
not to mention that nothing even comes close to looking as good in black than ANY other color. >:D

It's easy to see why you couldn't tell whether it was black or white.

Now had it been Red, you would not have had that problem!!!! :love:
Fella's...come on....Summit white would be the color of choice.....what would be the dead give away...snow?....summit?.....let's face it....a summit white Av Rules the slopes\\\\.... ;)
Yes I do love summit white I like how it looks in the snow but with those cool decals on the side I think a darker color would look better it would make the decals stand out better
